    Bilateral TKR
    ElsieYan posted:
    I had bilateral TKR 16 months ago at the age of 50 and it was the best thing I ever did.

    After TKR, I tend to be very observant of people struggling and walking in pain. I want to reach out to tell them that their problem can be fixed. Sometimes, I do but sometimes, certain circumstances prevent me from doing so. I realized that the main reason that prevent people from doing TKR is fear. It could be fear of the surgery, risks, complications, pain, recovery etc. But I believe that if people have adequate knowledge about TKR, its success rate and a positive mindset, they may be able to gather the courage to do it.

    That's why I started a blog a few months ago to create awareness and share experiences. I have written posts on my personal experience with bilateral TKR and a lot of related topics. Feel free to check out my blog and leave your comments.
